“OHMYGAWD! Matt, you didn’t have to do that!” Kimmy shrieked as she and Charlie helped pull Matt out of the alligator-infested pond. Matt shoved Kimmy’s hysterically yelping and slime-coated Pomeranian into her eager arms and stomped away. Charlie hurried after his wet, bleeding and bitten friend as Kimmy obliviously hugged and kissed her little dog.
Charlie leaned over to Matt and whispered, “You didn’t have to jump into the pond just because Kim called you a chicken.”
Matt softly muttered back, “I didn’t jump, I tripped and fell in.”
“Really?” Charlie asked.
“Yes,” Matt admitted as Charlie began giggling uncontrollably.
